History of Contessa Yachts

Contessa Yachts, a revered name in the sailing realm, began in 1966 as an offshoot of the Norfolk-based Jeremy Rogers Limited. The company was established by Jeremy Rogers himself, a humble yet determined man who had a passion for producing top-notch sea vessels. He started with the Contessa 26 model, a remarkable boat aptly suited for the ever-changing weather conditions of the UK seas. Its robust construction, impressive sea-keeping abilities, and the affordability quickly resonated with sailors, leading to its rise in popularity.

In 1971, after establishing a firm footing in the industry with the Contessa 26, Rogers further demonstrated his design prowess by launching the Contessa 32. The new model offered even better sailing performance and living standards, truly embodying the blend of comfort and cruising functionality. The boat became an instant sensation, receiving praise from both cruising and racing enthusiasts. Today, it holds its place as one of the most iconic and beloved British sailboats, symbolising Contessa’s years of excellence and dedication.

Currently, the company headquarters resides in Lymington, Hampshire, where Jeremy Rogers Limited has been crafting custom versions of the timeless Contessa models, now infused with modern technology and additional luxuries. Even after more than five decades, the name Contessa still holds a prestigious place in the sailing world, and the company continues to uphold its mission to build world-beating, seaworthy, and elegant yachts.
